Penny O’Brien, 25, Milton of Leys
Trainee Careers Adviser – Skills Development Scotland

Participating because.......

I have been a massive fan of Strictly Inverness ever since my mum took part in 2013. It’s finally my turn now that I have relocated back home to Inverness!

It is an exciting challenge and I have thrown myself in to training, fundraising and eventually performing. Highland Hospice holds a special place in all our hearts and the care and support received during my Granda’s stay at the Hospice was something our family will always appreciate. To be given a platform like Strictly to fundraise on such a large scale is something I am super grateful for!

In a sentence......

I have lots of positive energy and love to surround myself with good vibes! You will always find me on the dance floor at a party (but certainly not a ballroom dance floor!)

Interesting fact........

I love to travel! Some of my favourite experiences include having a mud bath with elephants in Thailand,snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, kayaking through Ha Long Bay, drinking Luwak poop coffee in Bali and volunteering on a community project in Gambia.

Participating because.......

I am raising money for a great cause that supports local people, and to do something that takes me out of my comfort zone.

In a sentence......

I’m a happy and positive person who looks for the good side of any situation.

Interesting fact.......

I am the winner of Strictly Inverness 2020 – (but don’t tell anyone!)
